Great location across the street from Copacabana Beach and Promenade. Safe building with doorman and elevator. The apt. was clean, neat and organized. Reasonable kitchen, though one must use a step stool to reach the microwave unless you are very tall. We frequented the nearby restaurants and shopped at the local grocery store for most of our needs. When we realized there was no hair dryer, one was purchased and provided for our use and that of future renters. We used the bathroom with the large jacuzzi tub/shower configuration which was awkward but manageable to shower as long as you watch your step. The air conditioning was appreciated in the hot, humid, wonderful tropical weather. We engaged Peter, a local tour guide, whom we'd highly recommend if you want to see all the sights!
Thank you (and many others) for your kind reviews! Peter and I are always very pleased when our guests are having a good time in Rio, which includes retreating to a quiet and cool apartment after being out and about in our big noisy city.... You are right, Donna, that microwave is way up there! I am planning to do an upgrade and renovation of the kitchen, so it will be better organized and more user friendly soon. Hopefully you will have an opportunity to come back and stay with us again, we are ready to welcome you back anytime!
Large and lovely apartment close to the beach. Clean. well maintained and cool. All problems were addressed quickly and to my satisfaction. I will stay there again next year and I will be joined by my daughter. Close to the beach, shopping, restaurants etc. This place made my stay even more enjoyable.
Never having been to Rio, we really weren't sure what to expect but the entire trip certainly exceeded any expectations that I had! The apartment is very clean and well maintained and in the perfect location. Just across the street from Copacabana beach and centrally located between Copacabana and Impanema. There were 4 of us in the apartment and we were very comfortable. The restaurant on the corner is convenient and quickly became our "go to" spot, they make the best (and most reasonably priced) caipirinhas we found!! Andreas was a great source of information prior to leaving for our trip, he very patiently answered all our questions and gave us a lot of insight into Rio in general and the neighborhood in particular. He had Peter Hult, tour guide and apartment manager, contact us and we were able to arrange for our airport transfers and tours before we left the States. Upon arriving, Peter met us at the apartment and spent at least an hour going over everything we needed to know about the apartment and Rio in general. He went over and above the call of duty on several occasions to make sure all our needs were met. If I were ever to return to Rio, I would not hesitate to stay in this apartment again and certainly couldn't find a better tour guide than Peter!!
Dear Andreas and Peter We spent a wonderful time in your department. It is very spacious, comfortable, we found everything we needed and everything works great. It looks like the photos, or even better. Its excellent location allowed us to enjoy both the Copacabana beach as well as the Ipanema beach. Peter was very friendly and gave us some tips that were useful. We highly recommend this apartment, we felt at home. Thanks!
The apartment was everything and more than advertised. Beautiful view of Copacabana beach, just across the street. We were fortunate to be there on the Independence Holiday weekend, the beach was a sea of red umbrella. Most Brazilian beach goers not tourists, what a treat! The sand was soft and the beach was very clean. Our favorite restaurant turned out to right under our window, literally. It was a sidewalk bar with food called Cafe d Aboim. Peter greeted us at the door, with a wealth of information. Great ideas of things to see, places to go and safety information. Ask Peter about the book Rio for Partiers, turned out to be our Bible, information and really fun read. Loved Rio, the people, the beaches, the food! Don't miss the sunset at Ipanema just a short walk down the beach. Would go again in a minute. Thank-you Andreas for sharing your lovely home with us!!!
I have to say that our stay at Andreas apartment was extremely pleasant. We arrived in Rio on the 10th and stayed in a hotel for the first three nights. In hindsight, I wish we could have stayed at this place for the entire week. From the beautiful art on the wall, to the dual washing/drying machine, to the great advise Andreas, and our host Peter offered for things to do in and around Rio, our experience was unforgettable.

Hi Andreas, Nice to hear from you. Yes, please copy and paste my comment to your webpage. There is no reason for not telling people how nice your place is in Rio. I want to commend you for not being too greedy by pricing it right, so people like me can afford 2 weeks stay in Rio, and enjoy the charm of the city and it's surrounding.

Hi Andreas and Peter I was so grateful that you guys were able to accommodate my family and I during the the week of June 12 - 19. Because of the UN RIO + 20 conference it was difficult for us to find a place to stay in Rio. We had a very enjoyable stay in Rio with the help of your beautiful, elegant, clean, spacious apartment. My son was able to have a lot of room crawling around the dining/living room area. The beds were comfortable. The jacuzzi works well. The kitchen was quite adequate for cooking meals and the Wi-Fi works really well. The apartment was very quiet and we didn't notice any traffic noise coming from the street which is great for sleeping late as my baby keeps me awake all night. As you know, we Americans expect more for our money in terms of amenities and your apartment has met and exceeded our expectation. Much better deal than staying in hotels that do not meet our expectations. Also, I wanted to say thank you to Peter who checked us in and out of the apartment. He is very courteous and friendly and very helpful. We are looking forward to renting from you guys again in the future. Thank you guys.
Dear Dominic, Thank you for your kind comments! We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to welcome you again in Rio in the near future. Andreas and Peter
I have been visiting Rio for over 20 years, and have always stayed at hotels. This apartment has way more amenities than the hotels. I would highly recommend this apartment, as I was able to entertain friends, and the spacious living room/dining room was large enough to host a party. The bedrooms were comfortable and most importantly, clean. Andreas and his contact in Rio, Anders, kept in touch with me throughout the whole process from booking through arrival and departure. Thank you for making my stay enjoyable.
Dear Carioca, Thank you for your kind comments! Great that you were able to host your party. We hope to see you again in Rio in the near future. Andreas
Andreas, the apartment was amazing! The location was excellent, within walking distance to the beach, the HELP Disco and to pleasant shopping. The cafe beneath the apartment has excellent croissants and the bar downstairs have the best liquor. Your apartment and advice placed us right in the middle of the most beautiful section of Copacabana. This was much better than the suites at the hotels we considered. The flat screen televisions in each room, the marble and tile in the bathrooms and the cell phone were a touch of class. I'm sure we will return. Thank you for your hospitality and for the beautiful apartment. Unfortunately, I had to come home. C'est la vie! 'Til next time, Tchau and Enjoy!
Thank you Obie! I am delighted that you had a great time and we look forward to your next stay with us in our Cidade Maravilhosa! Once a visitor to Rio - always a visitor to Rio.... saudades....you know? Tchau e muito obrigado, Andreas Lemperg
